About BSake
Joined June 2016
I was born in Kansas City, MO in the year of 1945. I have been married for 40 years. We have four children, nine grandchildren, and four great grand children. I like to read a good book, hike in the woods, ride my bicycle, and spend time with my husband.
My greatest passion is healthy living for my whole being. This passion grew over the years of looking for help for our son who has severe autism. During that search, we found a doctor who taught me how to feed our son, which in turn taught me how to feed my body. From there, my spiritual life took off. it is amazing how our body, our emotions, our thinking, and our spiritual life are so connected.
I have run my own bookkeeping business for years so I understand many aspects of owning and operating your own business. I look forward to creating a business that does not consume me, but allows me the freedom to pick my hours and still earn the amount of money I need to earn.
My husband and I want to travel some and this business means that I can travel and still keep on top of my business. All I would need to do is take my computer with me. I really, really like that.
We also want to work on our house updating it and making it more comfortable. And we need to aid our son financially as much as we can.
So we have some needs, goals, and wants. I pray that this is the answer we have been looking for.

Thank you KelseyLim! I agree with the statement about helping each other. I have been struggling with the time issue. Financially I had to bring in some money and had an opportunity to work part time until the first of the year, so I took it. At 71 years of age, I don't get many opportunities like that. It has eased my financial bind, but put restraints on how much time I get to spend on the website and the lessons. What's a girl to do??? LOL. I am thankful that I had some time today to dedicate mostly to WA until I go to work at 1 pm.
Would you mind telling me if you receive the emails from WA or if you opted out of receiving emails? If you do receive the emails, how in heavens name do you keep up with them? I sure would appreciate it!

KelseyLim Premium
Hi Barbara, I can understand that given the limited hours you had between your job there is this feeling of being overload with emails from members. It is good to receive emails from the community because that's where you interact, share and learn from members. However, it doesn't mean that you must read or reply to all of them. You can pick and chose, ignore or even delete them.

You can also go to your personal profile page and under email notification settings check off those that you want. I have attached my setting as an example for your ref.

I have also given you link from one of our member {Jewecarol) on how to deal with email loaded. I hope all these are of help.

Hi, Barbara.
There is someone I would like to introduce to you in case you are not already connected.

Her name is Edma. She is doing Autism Research. Unfortunately, we have a bit of a language barrier problem. We're using google translate.

Look into it. Paul.

BSake Premium
Hey Paul;
Good to hear from you. I tired the link but I am not versed in how to translate. Can you help me with that?
Barb

BSake Premium
Well what do you know. I figured it out! Does not translate real well, but enough to get the message.
Thanks
Barb

PMindra Premium
The Same way that I am doing it, Barb.

I still haven't figured out how she is going about this because her posts are in Portuguese, but her return comments are in fairly good English.

Perhaps she is using an actual 'person' translator during those periods.

To try to respond to her, I go to 'Google Translate' and type in my message that I want to send to her in Englis. Then I translate it into Portuguese, copy and paste it into my return comment section at WA and press 'add.'

I'm sure she gets most of the message as we get it here.

I thought that I would try to bring the two of you together, because from what I understand, she has some concrete understanding that Autism is developed in the first three years.

If I was out of line to make the connection between the two of you prior to getting your consent to do so, please forgive me and move forward.

It is very nice to hear from you again.

1. How is your son doing?
2. Did you get your comments section happening?

Do you know why right that I ask #2?

What we are doing here, we could be doing on your website, thereby improving the efficiency.

Touch base soon.

Kindest Regards,

Paul.

Hi, Barbara.

I hope you had a fruitful and enjoyable meeting last night.
I do not have any websites yet. They are a work in progress.

I did however forward yours (on autism) to a couple of close couples that share what you share.

Food has been a life-long passion and career for me and I am aware of its importance and dangers. I am a former Chef. Most of my work was accomplished here in Canada. I no longer can perform within that capacity as I have a rather curious 'Auto Immune Disorder.' Which I am being treated with a weekly infusion every Friday. It does me in for a couple of days, though.

Talking of Bison Burgers...I helped to introduce them back in 1995 along with Ostrich and a few other varieties.

I haven't really decided on any specific Niche yet and will probably just promote The Wealthy Affiliate to get started.

I have to get going (appointment at the hospital) 2.15 EST but as promised, I am writing to you today.

Let's stay in touch and see what we can all accomplish individually or collectively.

Peace unto to you and your loved ones.

Kindest regards,

Paul.

Thank you for inviting me to be a part of your network. I graciously accept by following you back.

Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate University. Your prayers will be answered.

Very interesting and thoughtful stories you share both on your profile and your website. I will be forwarding your website to two people that I know who have similar situations in the realm of Autism. You are a very special person.

I look forward to learning, sharing and serving with you moving forward.

Thank you, Bea.

As you know, major consensus indicates that there are four basic 'centers' that we as mortals have a foundation to work with:

Physical,
Emotional,
Spiritual, and
Intellectual.

Why should this be so hard for us to understand?

Barbara reached out to me on an 'emotional' level and you, as a third party without even being asked, responded on a 'spiritual' level in an 'intellectual' way.

How cool and interesting is that?

More tomorrow when I respond to Barbara.

Love, peace, and respect Bea.

You are 'gifted.'

I want to defer as I am so new and inexperienced in this

point you towards a website that will help you. Type in -

Well Kyle, I am a health nut mostly due to walking through life with a son who has severe autism. In our effort to help him, we have learned a lot about how to eat and take care of this body. So I went with good health. Then in trying to narrow it down, I came up with Natural Healthy Drinks. It really bothers me that so many drink pop without knowing the consequences. From there I narrowed it down to the drinks that support the immune system. I have done some research on it, but I am beginning to wonder if that is a good choice. Second guessing I suppose. And I have been told that it can take up to a year to make money doing this and I will need to spend a lot of money before I make money. That is very disheartening because I need to make money now and I don't have money to support this business before I make money. Have I been told correctly? And what do you think about the niche?
Reply
Kyle Premium
Yeah, that would work for your direction. Improving your Immunity, or Improving Your Immune system. Something that you could push on your site are drinks and that could be your focus initially, but focusing on the broad concept of immunity could give you a lot of flexibility.
Reply
BSake Premium
Hey Kyle, I like that idea. So would you suggest changing the name of my site from "Natural Healthy Drinks" to "Improve Your Immune System"???
Reply
Kyle Premium
Yeah, you could do that for sure. If that is the direction you are going to head, you ideally want your domain name to reflect that.
Reply
BSake Premium
Thank you Kyle. I will do some research because I know there are a lot of ways to go with building a strong immune system. Thanks for the help.
Reply
Kyle Premium
For sure, lots of topics you can talk about, how to's, problems/solutions, products and services. :)
Reply
BSake Premium
That is the truth. I deleted the website I started and setup another one. I did some keyword searches before I set the Title. I am connecting the immune system and food for that seems to be where people are in most need of education. I am really, really excited about this topic. So very many ways to go with this and so very many products out there. :) Now, when I create the first content, will someone look it over before I post it? Is that possible?
Reply
Kyle Premium
Always post your content first and then someone can review it. That is fine and then we can see it live and give you better feedback, it won't do any harm in doing this. And yeah, absolutely there are SO many ways in which you can head online. :)

Hey Kyle;
My instructions are to setup a free Jaaxy account and do 10 searches. Since I will not be able to afford to purchase a membership with Jaaxy at this time, should I setup the free account? It may be a couple of months before I can pay for a membership. I am using the keyword tool within WA.
Reply
Kyle Premium
Yeah, still create a free account. You don't have to buy it, but it is always good to check it out. :)

You have unlimited access to the WA keyword tool here at WA:

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/kw_research
Reply
BSake Premium
I went ahead and set it up. And I ran 14 searches. I compared the results with WA's keyword tool and the results were identical. I do understand that certain memberships at Jaaxy give me more information and other tools.
So now I do have my keyword searches and great idea for content. Thank you!
Reply
Kyle Premium
Yeah, both leverage the exact same data. Just the Jaaxy platform is far more advanced and elaborate (more for a power user and covers much more than ), but the WA keyword tool is more than good for your keyword research.
